Have to say that MSI starts to really grab everyone’s attention and begins to shine since 2015. Awards and positive product usage experience were given by both end-users and professional media editors and reviewers.

MSI is probably the first brand to go full gaming on all its product lines. It started to focus on the gaming market really early, long before other brands currently seen in the gaming industry. After years of dedication in this market, MSI now offers 5 different gaming series, from extreme gaming to performance and mainstream gaming, to satisfy different gaming needs (picture 1).
